    Yeah, I almost posted about this last night.

    For me, I'm interested in things like KDE 3.x (Trinity) and Gnome 2.x (Mate) forks, and at the same time I'm reluctant to get too involved with them not knowing how long they might last, or which direction they themselves might head. Of course you never really know those things about the current KDE and Gnome official projects, either.

    I might play around with Trinity a bit on a future weekend when I have some spare time. From looking at the screenshots on their website, it looks a bit outdated in appearance, but if it works well that might not matter all that much.

    Kinda like me and old choppers. It may not be the latest and flashiest. But it gets you there and are reliable also. I might play a bit also later with this.

    Cool I'd be interested in your feedback on it (or anyone else's as well)

    Hey Rocky, how goes it? I have not given Trinity a try; I left KDE 3.5 behind some time ago, but if this thing really lives on, maybe it is worth a look. If you do try it I'd be interested in your opinion of it.

    Howdy back atcha Brian.It will be awhile before I install it in my AntiX 11 IBM T23 Laptop. I got some oil changes scheduled plus some other chores this week. Maybe later this weekend. I will post my install method and opinions at the AntiX forum when I get around to it.

    Package kde-trinity is not available, but is referred to by another package.
    This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or
    is only available from another source
    
    E: Package 'kde-trinity' has no installation candidate
    All I can figure is because

    Since I am on Wheezy using Testing, That the KDE 4 (which I don't have installed) from Wheezy don't want me to install Trinity. Followed the sites instructions for install . Oh well. I'll comment the repos out and stick with Fluxbox and do a dist-upgrade to the newer fluxbox instead.

    Yeah, I too have decided to pass on it, at least for the time being. Maybe later, after it's had time to mature a bit and solidify, I'll look into it again.
